This is a program that prepares individuals to perform the duties of a firefighter. Instruction includes training in safety, firefighting, equipment operation, maintenance, and the principles of fire science. This high school based firefighter development course is derived from Utah State Fire Fighter Standards, NFPA, IFSAC, current Unified Fire Authority standards and the experience of an instructor cadre from multiple jurisdictions.
Due to some strenuous physical activities, the student must pass a physical entrance test and must obtain a physician’s approval based on such requirements.
